Hey guys,

Today I wanted to give you a little glimpse into my life. As some of you know, a few months back I made the decission to move downtown Los Angeles and in all honesty it has been quite the experience. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know my obession with big cities and old architecture so moving here was a no brainer. To most people in LA downtown is like the plague they want to avoid at all costs, but to me it’s still an undiscovered gem that’s going to be huge in a few years. Since I moved here I see new restaurants and unique street style shops opening up every week. Best part about living here, is having a ton of my friends live in the same building as me. Sophia came over one day and she loved it so much that she moved into my complex a week later. It’s just such an amazing feeling waking up and taking the elevator to your best friend’s place wearing pajamas. On our free time we love exploring downtown and finding new restaurants or just taking photos of the architecture. If you’re in LA or you come visit you HAVE to check out the Ace Hotel, Standard and Perch- 3 of my favorite spots with stunning rooftop views.

This outfit is a bit out of my comfort zone as you won’t see me rocking a maxi dress very often. I love pairing it with some thick heel booties, a spanish hat which I thrifted and of course a strappy crop top to avoid any weird bra straps. Comment below where you are reading from and what do you love about the city/neighborhood you live in?

Dress: Dailylook, Booties: Forever21{sold Out}, Hat: Vintage Thrifted, Bralette: Dailylook, Bag: Moschino.

xoxo,
Evelina

    You look gorgeous in that dress! You should wear maxis more often. xx
    I am writing from Finland and I moved to a new town last fall to study in uni. Although I’ve lived here only for 5 months, it already feels like home. The best thing about this town is the young people who liven up the place. I hope I’ll get a chance to visit LA someday, it sounds like my dream city.

    • Evelina

      Ah that’s so cool! Really hope to visit Finland some day <333

    I’m reading from downtown Long Beach, in Ca of course. I love all the buildings and small shops you can find just by walking down the street. You are so right about Downtown LA, everyone avoids it for dear life but I love going and walking around observing the people and different cultures and of course it’s just a beautiful sight.

    • Evelina

      It really is! You’ll see in a few years is going to be like a mini Manhattan <3

  • Ana

    wow, amazing photos Evelina! You’re rocking that maxi dress! I really want to visit LA someday 🙂

    • Evelina

      Thank you love!

  • you’re welcome ^^

  • Absolutely beautiful post, your outfit is amazing. I must say, I had a negative view of LA until I saw these photos – it looks lovely! xx

      Thank you for reading and definitely visit!

  • That dress is everything. You look SO good in these pics! And all of these pictures remind me of Manhattan during the summertime, which I love being from the city 🙂

  • I just love your blog and you so much! you are such an inspiration to me, you are so beautiful! I am just wondering if you know how to get date and comment beside the post like you have, where do I put the code?

    Lots of love, Andrea xoxo

  • I miss living downtown. It’s definitely up and coming and changes by the week. Good luck on your new adventure.

  • Gorgeous post Evelina! I love finding those perfect neighborhoods that other people would normally just walk past. I’m hoping to find something similar where I live so that I can make that area my own before everyone else realizes how awesome it is. 😉

  • Judging by your pics, I don’t see why that area is so dredded. But the again, living in Denmark in a small 35K people “big” city, how would I know. I love my small/big area for the centeal placement and the convenience. It is close to most of my friends and family 🙂 It has though also been elected as the most beautyfull shopping-city for several years, gotta count for something, right 🙂

    Please do a video with Sophia! I love you both so much.

  • I live near Paris and I just love the mix between old and new.

  • I came here from your most recent Youtube Q&A and I have to say — your content is SO ace lately. Просто прелесть 😉 Yo answer your question, I live in Pasadena and I love the crap out of it because it has a little bit of everything without the chaotic feeling of traffic and overcrowding. Oh my god, I am a grandma.

  • Hey beautiful! 🙂
    I’m reading your blog for about a year now, I’m subscribed to your YouTube channel and I love your videos so much! I love electronic dance music as well and going to parties is one of the best thing ever! 😀 I love your fashion style and I must say that you are some kind of a video-editor PRO, because your videos are always so damn pretty to watch. haha 🙂
    I’m coming (reading/writing 🙂 from Slovenia (Slovenija) in Central Europe. It borders with Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia. I live in a very small country – with a population of only 2 million people. 🙂

    I’m so happy for your succes as a blogger/vlogger and I wish you all the best in the future!!!
    I will keep on watching you and you will keep on inspiring me. 😉
    Thank you for that!
    Samanta, xoxo

  • I’m from Long Island. I love that it’s so close to New York City & there’s always something new to do!

    The way you have paired up this maxi dress and those gorgeous booties is absolutely stunning. I have to admit you’re among those blogers who are pure inspiration and encourage me to become better and better each day.
    Thank you Evelina.

    Hey, Evelina! I became a really big fan of your blog and youtube channel! Just wanted to let you know that you inspire me a lot in many ways – I am no longer scared to express my own self anymore and by using a few pieces of advice from other bloggers I become a better me 🙂 I love your style as a whole and also LOVE watching your fashion café videos! Exactly what I’m searching for in YouTube. I actually am 11th grade in Bulgaria and attending a fashion design course and I have a blog 🙂 Please check it out and let me know what you think 🙂 Would mean the world to me <3

  • I’m a big fan of your style Evelina. I think you just put everything together so beautiful and your style is so diverse and not so one pointed. Thats exactly how i feel about my style, everything goes as long as i’m comfortable in what i’m wearing! Would love it for your to visit my site one day.

    For now week up the great work, and I’m kinda feeling like i need to come and get some LA right now!

    I’m from England and I live in a small city called Bradford. Actually I don’t think I have anything I love about where I live. I think it’s because I’ve spent so much time thinking of how to get out of this city, that I haven’t been able to love anything about it.

    Am a nigerian and I live there too. I love both your stlyes and your youtube videos. I have a dream of moving to the united states for my graduate studies.Also, in one of your videos u made mention of squats that can enlarge booty. If you don’t mind can you send me the squats.

  • I live on the edge of Russian hill in San Francisco and I love the wealthy neighborhoods and exploring to see everyone’s homes. And our neighborhood has amazing shops and places to eat. One day I stumbled on an Italian restaurant in the middle of residential properties. In the window I saw pictures of the owner and various celebrities in his restaurant. I would have never known it existed if I hadn’t been on one of my nosy strolls on Russian hill. I discover something beautiful and new every time. I love it.

  • Love the bag!!!

  • I too have an extreme passion for large cities and architecture. There’s just something so inspiring about them!
